The entire world seems to think Kyle Hendricks is going to Iowa.  I can't seem to find anything official to suggest this, but his family and friends are congratulating him on the promotion on Twitter.  If true, it seems oddly timed to me.  Tennessee is in the middle of a very serious playoff push and Hendricks is easily their best starting pitcher and Cabrera has been moved up already, so where would the pitching come from?  Also, despite some recent clearing out, the AAA rotation is still a bit stuffed.  Not sure what is going on here.  Ideas?  Thoughts?

I am hearing rave reviews on Hendricks.  I wonder what is his ceiling exactly. Mid rotation, right?

I was thinking the exact same thing. I guess I really don't know what to make of this.

Mid rotation for a ceiling sounds about right.  He likely slots in as a fourth of fifth starter so long as he can continue to hit his spots.

 

I think his stuff is a little better than generally advertised, but not good enough to push him to above mid-rotation status.

There was a tweet yesterday that he was removed off the Smokies roster and told to pack his bags for a move up, but I can't seem to find the tweet today so I'm not sure if it was deleted or just buried in a swamp of posts.  On the Smokies site he is still on the roster, but the official one tends to be a day or 2 behind actual moves.

If that is true, than good to hear and good for him.

Not sure what he's doing in Mesa first, but he is definitely getting ready to head to Iowa.

I wonder if the Cubs are expecting another move regarding Iowa's roster before adding Hendricks.

 

Because I'm not sure why they would promote a guy from Double A to Triple A by way of Rookie Ball either.

Yeah very strange.  Iowa does have a glut of starters though so maybe they are trying to keep him on schedule while they clear some things up.
